Easy 6 miles today.  13th east loop. Starting to gain some muscle in my upper body with the pushups I've been doing the last couple of months.  Nice.. I'm tired of being skinny!

AM-Easy to medium effort for 5 miles.  7th and trax loop.  

PM-Just an easy 5 miles again on 7th.  Busy working on the van this afternoon. Got tired of hearing the wife complain about not having the windshield wipers work along with no ac.  I swear it never ends with this vehicle..  I shouldn't complain though as we got a smokin deal on it from a really good friend of ours.

Had to get out for a few easy miles this morning..  Our 15 year old cat named Callie is slowly fading this morning and is probably not going to make it the rest of the day.  I have not had a pet die so this is a new experience but I have to tell you I now understand what people mean when they say it's like losing a member of the family.  Feeling so very sad today:(

AM-Easy 6 miles on 7th east out and back early this morning.  42:07/7:01 avg pace. Wow..  I need to start running every day at this time of the morning.  Nice and cool with no gusty hot winds to contend with.

PM-Easy 6 miles at lunchtime.  9400s course.  Warm and windy on the way out.  Starting to feel some strength and fitness come back. Need to just keep plugging in the base mileage like this everyday now.

Out for 10 miles with 4 miles at 5:45-6:15/mi toward the end. 7th and 13th east loop course.  Push-ups and ab work also afterwards. Finally my SI joint is opening up after seeing the chiro and stretching every day.  I have a few things to say about things lately but then again I may not. I will at least wait for a while.. Definitely need to post a new profile pic though. Hmm.. This one doesn't really work or does it?

Went to church this morning. I felt the spirit particularly strong today and had a little bit of a moral inventory taken on myself.  One of our talks was on pride and how it does not only affect the rich and successful but also those of us looking from the bottom up.  I am guilty as charged in that area lately but have come to realize that my worth as person isn't based on the number of medals and trophys I have attained or even my income.  Don't get me wrong not all pride is bad, but there is a fine line between the good and the bad kind if we don't keep our desires and wants in line with the Lord's.  If not the devil will surely lead us to his sense of pride..

AM-Easy 10 miles on 7th and 13th south loop.  

PM-No second run today.  My wife Kim suddenly came up with the idea of going to Lagoon today.  Second workout in the afternoon heat? Or.. Lagoon with the family I said to myself. Nah.. Lagoon wins hands down every time.  Have you ever ridden this new ride they call "Wicked"?  Wow that thing gave me headache!  One guy told me that at some points it will turn you at about 4 Gs.  No wonder it rattled my brains..  We had a real blast though:)

Easy-medium 6 miler this morning on the Rio loop.  Last 3 miles at 6-6:20/pace.   Probably my only run for today as it is a hectic one.  Our other vehicle broke down and I have to find a way to go get it and work on it today.  We have a saying now at our house; "If it ain't broke, it aint ours."

 Long run tomorrow hopefully:)

AM-Out and back on 7th east for 6 miles.  Went out real easy for the first 3 and felt strong so I followed up the last 3 miles at 6-6:10/mile pace and closed on the last half mile at 2:31.  I ran pretty hard yesterday so I'm a bit surprised that my legs felt this good.  Off day tomorrow anyhow.

PM-No run.  I'm golden with 76 miles this week anyway.

PM-Easy 6 mile jog/run at lunch time.  Rio loop.  After much thought I have come to the decision that I need to go and run TOU marathon.  I'm not going to compete because I'm not in that good of shape but just go run a good marathon and enjoy it.

PM-Medium 6 miler on 7th and State.  Picked up the last 4 miles in progressive increments. Felt really strong on this one and it was really strange also how the heat bothered me more this morning than it did this afternoon..  Hydration level maybe?
